Although the construction of Uzungöl Mosque, which is one of the symbols of Uzungöl, is not very old, the mosque integrated with Uzungöl seems to be 600 meters away with its minarets. In order not to lose the visuality of the mosque, painting works were made from time to time. The view of Uzungöl Mosque is also magnificent in the evening. Especially professional photographers love to take photos of Uzungöl and the mosque.
